into the capital under tight security. behind-the-scenes an fbi team is preparing to fly to benghazi to investigate the attack. the compound behind these walls is the major crime scene but any evidence left inside will have been badly contaminated by looters and curious local people who flooded in after the attack. here's what eyewitnesss, officials and libyan commanders in charge that night have told us. sometime around 9:30 p.m. about 70 armed men attacked the consulate's main gates with guns and heavy weapons. they then stormed in, overwhelming local and american security. with all four buildings on fire the libyan government ordered a local militia to the rescue. that militia helped to ferry 31 americans and the body of sean smith out the back gate in armored cars to a house a mile away rented by the u.s. government. shortly afterwards it too came under fierce attack. what we still don't know is how back at the compound ambassador stevens got separated from his security detail only to be found dead or dying just after midnight by the crowd. suspicions for the attack have focused on a powerful i

of a couple of dozen fbi people go into benghazi when the only people they could get to protect them are the militias. right now they don't trust any of the militias. the key militia that's in charge of protecting the hospital where the wounded were taken from this attack is suspected to be behind the attack. that crime scene's long ago compromised, trampled through, looted. it may or may not yield anything terribly important. if it does, it will yield it later. it's a difficult situation. >> is there any more information on this question of how much this may have been a pre-planned attack? >> there is, and i think you've kind of put your thumb on the pulse of the problem there because in these groups we look for -- we want a wearing diagram. we want an organized picture. it was al qaeda who ordered it. it was this group that assisted. the problem is the lines are blurred between those groups and their members. things are popping up in places like benghazi, yemen, tunisia and they're not al qaeda but they're reading from the al qaeda narrative. they are being influenced by people who
